A glass of red wine, sex and walking. It was my first pregnancy ... I was late about 10 days.

Fresh pineapple and take a really long walk. Some people say sex works too.

I took long walks! And I cleaned a lot. But try not to "induce" your baby will come when he/she is ready!

Honestly, I genuinely tried EVERY trick in the book with both pregnancies and was still past due with both. It will only work when your body is truly ready in my experience. The *only* two things that helped progress me but didn't induce labor was Evening Primrose Oil and Sex.

I have heard raspberry leaf tea. I bought some to try when I was pregnant with my 1st, but never got a chance, my water broke the night I bought it. Worth looking into anyway:) congratulations on your impending arrival!

I was moving pretty heavy flower pots, planted flowers in the yard ( it was summer ) and went on a very long walk on the beach. Water broke 1am that night.

Just be patient Hun! Baby will come when baby is ready.., unless your water breaks slightly like mine did... So I had to be induced but trust me the tricks don't work

How far along are you? I ask because so many mommies get anxious, but they aren't due yet. Sex, nipple stimulation, meditation, and having an active lifestyle helped me start labor. However, when baby is ready, baby will come. ( sorry I know most pregnant ladies don't want to hear that - but it's the truth! )

Clary Sage oil Rub it on your feet, lower back, and run into hands. I also added a few drops in my bath water after my walk. My water broke 7hrs later

I bounced on a yoga ball haha I think it helped. I was six days late but started bouncy on the ball and it came really fast!

Sex, walking, squats, pineapple I supposed to but you have to eat a LOT of it I guess.

Bouncing on a trampoline helped my sister. Lots of walking helped me and going up and down stairs. Nipple stimulation can work too if you're not in the mood for sex.
